Place everything up to the bay leaves in a large mixing bowl and stir together. Mix to coat chicken.
Place in the insert of the crock pot and add the two bay leaves.
Cover and cook for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. (I always like low and slow better)
Before serving, whisk together heavy cream and corn starch, then pour the mixture into the crock pot and gently stir. Let cook an additional 20 minutes to thicken.
Serve over bed of rice. (I suggest basmati rice. And some Naan is a great addition to the meal.)
